Kiwi-Sea cocktail, with fresh kiwi, light or spiced rum, apricot brandy, lemon juice, and agave syrup

The Kiwi-Sea is a brilliant concoction from Kurtis Bosely, a cocktail consultant and brand ambassador for Moët Hennessy. For us northern hemispherians, kiwifruit are a summer treat – but Bosely is based in New South Wales, Australia, where kiwi are an autumn crop. The Kiwi-Sea reflects that Oceanic seasonality, offering a comfortable palette of stone fruit and warm agave, set against rum and lemon, with just a hint of creamy tartness from the kiwi.

It may be heretical, but we think the Kiwi-Sea is quite nice with a light spiced rum, so long as the spice is mild and doesn’t dominate.



Peel and quarter the kiwi, and muddle it in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and shake vigorously. Double-strain into an ice-filled short glass. Garnish with a half-slice each of lemon and kiwi.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
